The Cat’s Pics

“Client” lunch with Chef H.

Shrimp Bruschetta



So, The Cat and Chef H ordered a pork banh mi and a grilled Portobello sandwich. Server was kind enough to split the order onto two plates. No fuss. The Cat and Chef H got half an order of everything. Neat huh? Wait, where’s the Portobello sandwich?

Chocolate Cake

Chef H took the leftover cake home. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Breaking from the Sunday routine. Eating after farmers market.


Not typical golf course menu.

The Cat’s Order

Herb grilled salmon – Sautéed vegetables, rice, topped with ginger-pesto. Nicely grilled, moist.

The Mouse’s Order

Lechon Kawali – Crispy fried Locally raised pork belly, citrus soy, Maui onions, Ho farm tomatoes, served with rice & tossed greens.


Crispy pork, seasoning not too vinegar-y. Repeat worthy. Four paws.

The Mouse now has two places on the windward side to get his pork belly fix. Mama’s Kitchen and here.

No Mudd pie here, but …

Gelato and Sorbet

Green tea, acai, strawberry guava. Big scoops.

Be back soon. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, so the only common element with this salad and an actual Caesar salad was the Romaine lettuce, but The Mouse had fun constructing it. Hee hee.

Romaine Lettuce

Wanted anchovies but doctor would probably go on a rant about way too much sodium.


At least they were lightly smoked and in oil.

Add Sardines


Add Lentil


Top with Faux Crab Salad

Not authentic, but The Mouse liked. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Maybe three.

Given the choice, The Cat will order some kinda seafood. But, none on the menu. Kalua pork sandwich in a tourist spot (semi-client lunch).

Kalua Pork Sandwich

Mango Guava BBQ, Island Slaw, Crispy Maui Onions, Fries. The Cat brought home for The Mouse to sample. The Mouse thinks a little too fou fou for him. Could’ve done without the BBQ sauce. The Mouse is a purist.

The Mouse’s kalua pork sandwich picked up after work.

Kalua Pork Sandwich

Bob’s BBQ. Roadside “shack”. Been there for ages. Bun, mayo, iceberg lettuce, kalua pork. Pure (okay, could’ve done without the mayo, but okay), and cheap. The Mouse thinks could’ve bought at least three, maybe four of his sandwiches compared with one of The Cat’s, but industrial area vs. tourist area and no view vs. in the middle of Waikiki. Go figure.

Since The Cat still has oyster po’boys on the mind, and so far none to be found on SPAM Land, The Mouse picked up …

Fried Oyster Sandwich

Bun, cole slaw, fried oysters. (Maybe one more oyster? Fill in the blank space?)

So, no atmosphere, no French roll, no Preservation Jazz, but The Cat appreciated the gesture.

Yay! No doctor appointments today!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Japanese Rye Bread

Try try.

The Foundation

Japanese rye bread, Korean multi-grain puff, Minion food. Hee hee.

Add Supporting Cast

Yellow mustard, whole grain mustard, and Dijon mustard on the rye bread, Vegemite on the multi-grain puff.

Add Main Characters

Open-faced ham and egg sandwich on rye bread with Picnics from the Vine, avocado “toast” on multi-grain puff, and Minion food.


Enjoy. Eat well.

Don’t walk under any ladders or cross paths with black cats today. Hee hee.
